tv   Markets Now  FOX Business  January 20, 2014 11:00am-1:01pm EST

11:00 am
stuart: dagen, it is yours. dagen: fox business will have extensive coverage of this. it was good to see you. clearing the way for a partial lifting of sanctions. more backlash for governor chris christie. funds for the 2012 super storm were withheld. the question is, why are we hearing about this now? the flu now widespread in 40 states. it will be the denver broncos and the seattle seahawks battling out in a frigid new jersey. welcome to the northeast.
11:01 am
all of that and so much more coming up in this hour of market now. connell: welcome back, by the way. dagen: i find the winters here much worse. were they good? did people watch? ironic beginning to roll back its higher-level enrichment. country.why in some sanctions the white house says it will continue aggressive enforcement of measures that remained in place. joining us now is k.t. mcfarland and mike baker.
11:02 am
that is a mouthful. you better bring it. you have been skeptical of this. are you still as skeptical? >> this is the easy part. in exchange, they have decided to freeze the program. what we want them to do is roll it back. we have now given up all of our leverage. the reality of it is one so sanctions are lifted, it is like a floodgate. the rest of the world counts. their uranium stock market went up by the end of december on a mere promise and suggestion that the sanctions would be lifted.
11:03 am
once the sanctions are lifted even slightly, there will be no stopping. mike, do you agree? >> yes. i am skeptical. once you start this process, it is very hard to stop. people are always looking for a way to beat the sanctions. they will not turn back the clock just because it says we do not have transparency. that will be the biggest issue. it is nice to have this opportunity, but, frankly, wishing and hoping is not a good foreign policy process.
11:04 am
dagen: do we even know kt? >> others have said as much as a year. nobody is saying five years. iran will be perceived. no matter what happens next. dagen: that is assuming that other nations trust them.
11:05 am
>> that is the big question. do they decide that they will challenge it. dagen: talk about the quality of intelligence that we have coming out of iran at this point. >> kt is absolutely right. it has always been a very difficult task. we have this disconnect. we have a former ie eight executive, and officials saying two-three weeks. they have other people saying at least one year out. i think, frankly, we will be having a conversation this time next year about how the oh officials have used this effort
11:06 am
to create what they want which is a nuclear weapons program. they will use some of the funds that are being released to do just that. >> iran is literally the alpha dog. >> you have a nuclear arms race. dagen: i screwed it up and it is too late to unscrew it, i guess. >> develop our own energy so we do not have to worry about them. dagen: mike, thank you.
11:07 am
connell: thank you. after a record number setting by the government now forced to continue the pressure being put on businesses in this year. dagen: rich edson is in d.c. with more. >> they are collecting more than $1 billion in fines. these are only antitrust funds. the department says it collected at least $8 billion that was before jpmorgan's $13 billion settlement. >> no question that the beginning of this administration was a focus on financial services. it has just taken a long time for them to mature.
11:08 am
what they are really focus on is bringing more of these cases to deter this kind of conduct. rich: the u.s. collected $1 billion in antitrust funds in 2013. the eu had businesses with 2.5 billion. that to you. connell: thank you. a little football for you now. we talked a little bit about the ratings. huge numbers. these are really big. the second highest rating on. the broncos headed to the superbowl for the first time in 17 years. peyton manning was terrific yesterday. he missed the entire season with a herniated neck.
11:09 am
the first cold-weather superbowl in history. one of many storylines. dagen: is it not amazing? he has been able to come back from that. >> of course. this is the best season a quarterback has ever had joined the ball. will he step aside? dagen: let's hope that the stadium out in jersey brings page and more luck than it has eli. all right. the seattle seahawks outlasting san francisco 49ers 23-17. it came down to the wire.
11:10 am
this will be seattle's second superbowl appearance. one other note about all of this, broncos and seahawks, it looks like they will be joined by roger goodell. he will sit outside with the fans during the game at the stadium. the latest forecast saying 47 degrees. roger goodell, forget about this luxury box. he will sit outside with the fans. something i would not do, by the way. dagen: if somebody gave you the ticket, but it was not a great seat, you would go, wouldn't you? connell: no.
11:11 am
no i would not. i might. i have no desire to go. i always say that if the jets are in it, i will go. i know it won't happen. dagen: i would go. i am still hoping it is a plague of locusts and frogs. i hope it is the worst weather they have ever seen on superbowl sunday. the latest on the person behind the malware used in that target breed. connell: there is shortage and now a recall on bella vita. dagen: zero my gosh. before the superbowl two. ♪

we've already learned about this scandal, it is not impossible to believe something was done here. we don't know what we don't know yet. the one thing that bothers me is this is a sort of standard thing that happens, politicians can put into petty and it looks like petty politics are played into this. cheryl: why was the mayor of hoboken sitting on this? i do believe they are piling on to chris christie in any way shape or form. dennis: i want an investigation into why the mayor of a destroyed town did not go instantly to the public and say i want money for my people, they just threatened me. instead she turns over to a diary. when you look through this diary, she actually says this,

12:22 pm
dennis: have to worry about violating civil rights and the lawsuits and the first amendment. does it make it more concerning? >> probably the russians are probably putting a tremendous amount of effort behind security at the olympics. i spoke to somebody who was there in the advanced capacity and they say all along the roadways leading to major venues you have police and military vehicles along the roads. very strong presence of security throughout the olympics and we also know they are doing everything they can to find out who is planning the attacks. dennis: the previous olympics set 50. he don't to this reduction in staff mainly because they will be insulted if we send too many people. we don't see this, why is that?

12:31 pm
it trades at about 11 times when the market trades at 16 times. about a three to 6% growth story going forward. cheryl: did they expect that for 2013? >> they expect that for the next several years. in line with what corporate america is grilling. it will increase, and remember cisco has been quietly by network security companies over the last three to five years and network security spending will come back in a big way because of all of these breaches and hacks we have seen. dennis: they bought a company, takes off. typically the opposite. the best way to explain this, help me out, actually helping

network managers, like a mall cop. that is a fair assessment? >> that is an accurate and fair assessment. the hardware, the systems, the guts of it, a growth line on top of the networks. think of it as a very intelligent traffic manager of the different types of data across ms. networks. networks are doing nothing but getting more complicated, more busy to increase traffic. it is growing around 30% on the top line every year, and sits on top of that and and adjust the traffic. very important to see the traffic, and it it and be about it. cheryl: the last six months is down about 4%. why do you think that is? >> it is an ipo that came out

12:34 pm
spigot is a problem because most of these things are moment, games. if you have the teens starting to go, others will follow. there is the line about people under 30 are digital natives and the rest of us are immigrant. the kids are going to be the leaders and the rest of us are going to follow. dennis: is it enough to make you worry about investing in facebook stock? >> a bit. to me, facebook is taking sort of a swiss army knife approach. a little bit for business, sell some more ads, trying to be news and so forth, and twitter is better news, linkedin is better at business things and so forth. so yes, i think the momentum is going away. dennis: from the advertising standpoint, you've got over a billion people in that tent, teenagers don't have a lot of money to spend anyway. should marketers be upset about this? >> teens are influential.
12:35 pm
facebook for the younger demographic. they can do things for marketer standpoint. dennis: no how hard it is to go to some other place? is that one of the barriers that makes facebook safe? >> it is called the network effect. more powerful it will get. facebook doesn't want to be cool. mark zuckerberg compared it to electricity. electricity is probably pretty cool when it came out but over the years it just became something that ran in the background and powered the daily life. they have used that analogy for the digital experience. dennis: i think one reason the teenagers flea is we saw myspace.
12:36 pm
but facebook may be a critical mass where doesn't have to fear becoming myspace and yet should facebook be doing something to get teens back and what should they be doing? >> i think they learned the lessons of myspace when something is really new, people will make mistakes that they won't make later once they have seen how things play out. momentum is gone. i think they have to do a series of experiments. handling pictures is the thing people really think about. you will see them do more acquisitions. more of the experiment and match

12:44 pm
automotive or other areas turning to grow. cheryl: the biggest portion of your business right now. that is structures that have a starbucks and walgreens, bank of america financial, whatever. you think there is a turnaround story here. >> real estate does better in a good economy. landlord, when the landlord gets to raise the rent, is a good thing the underlining properties. their opening more stores. you can have higher rent in stores. what has been happy last five years is real estate has been a defensive play. as the economy gets better, real estate becomes an offense or growth oriented play. cheryl: lot of different ways to invest. health care, hospitality. power centers, really health care.
